ACT police are investigating a major incident at the Bimberi Youth Detention Centre last night, which involved several young people and staff.

Four members of staff were taken to Canberra Hospital in a stable condition, while a further three were sent to Calvary Hospital with minor injuries.

It took police two hours to secure the detention centre following the incident, which triggered an ambulance bypass at Canberra Hospital from 8.30pm for around two hours.
